ERP - Enterprise Resource Planning. ERP systems are very complex, and in order to function must underly the whole operational side of a business. The generic capabilities of ERP systems are well understood, as are the methodologies for using them, however the complexity of these systems, and the wide range of business practices and variables that they must encompass, means that they are hard to implement successfully. 

Your ERP supplier will understand their system, and the standardised methodologies associated with it, for instance Order Entry and Processing, Inventory Management, Credit Control etc. What they will not understand so well is your business, and because they see your business operations from the viewpoint of how they can be shaped into the capabilities of their ERP system, instead of asking how the ERP system can be moulded to your business, the solutions and processes they propose are often far from "best fit".

SBA can assist you with your ERP deployment by:


  • Advising you on which ERP system will best match your needs
  • Implementing and customising your ERP system
  • Training and supporting your people in the adoption of the system and the new work practices that  result
  • Defining and developing the reporting and management information you require from the system
  • Helping you interface the ERP system to other systems and data sources in your business.


SBA's consultants have experience of deploying successful ERP implementations including systems such as Microsoft Dynamics Nav, Tetra, Sage Line 500 & Line 1000, and rescuing failed ERP projects. We approach ERP from the viewpoint of the business, with long experience of making ERP work in real life. We intimately understand the business activities that ERP systems are supposed to support, and will help you get the best from your investment in ERP.
